We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based Astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for Jan. 31, 2017.
The Moon finishes her swim through Pisces today, which means the focus is still on self-care, compassion, and intimacy. Though things may get a little bumpy in the morning when the Pisces Moon squares off with Saturn in Sagittarius, which could have a bit of a depressing effect. However, the feeling doesn't last long as the Moon meets up with Venus in Pisces just after noon, heightening the empathetic, tranquil, and romantic vibes in the air. Afterwards, the Moon goes void-of-course (aka when the Moon goes on a brief "hiatus" before moving into the next sign), which like a Pisces Moon, void-of course Moons are best for relaxing, meditating, and tying up loose ends.
We're going to need all the rest and decompression we can get because the Moon shifts into fiery and fired-up Aries by late afternoon. With Aries being the warrior of the zodiac, under an Aries we Moon we may feel more argumentative and reckless than usual, though the Aries Moon can help us find strength and confidence when we need it most. Things could get tricky when the Moon meets up with Mars in Aries later tonight, which can be the equivalent of sitting on a powder keg. Use this energy wisely by tempering Aries' more impulsive nature by picking and choosing battles carefully to keep the fire from burning out of control.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
There isn't much you can ask for that people can say no to today, which means you must make sure that you're asking for all the right things. This is one of those times where focusing on the glass half full applies, as you have more available to you than you think. Remain optimistic and confident.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Something's under your skin today, though it may be hard to put a finger on it, which could have you indirectly taking your frustration out on others hoping that they can read your mind. Instead of falling for that emotional trap, call on a trusted friend that you can talk to or have that necessary heart to heart.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Career-wise you sparkle today which means you could receive a gift or well-deserved attention from the higher ups or those that have been paying attention. This means it's an excellent time to take the lead in connecting with others as a means of capitalizing on your impressive reputation.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
This is one of those days where you're called to shoot for the moon as a dream could come true now, especially where it pertains to your career. Speaking of your career — are you happy where you are? If you've been trying to save face and put up with it, a disagreement with a superior could change that.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Today's not the day to spend too much time in your feelings as things are about to heat up for you in a good way. New experiences, places, and people are on the horizon so don't be surprised if you're booking a last-minute trip. Though to get out of this rut, it's time to stop defending an outworn belief.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Though things may start out a little bumpy between you and your love today, it's easier to smooth things over if you let empathy and understanding guide you. Everything doesn't always have to be a battle of words and wits. If you play your cards right, you two could be getting hot and heavy in no time.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You might have a "I love you but I hate you" moment when it comes to a friend, co-worker, or your partner today which could be more annoying than anything. While you pride yourself on being able to get along with others, sometimes that's not the case. Shake it off and move on.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Today could have its pluses if you're willing to make your self-care a priority. This means making space for dreaming, creating, a change of scenery, a change of pace, getting sweaty, getting pampered, and getting physical healing like bodywork. Choose the work you take on carefully.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
If your personal and family obligations have been taxing you, today is a good time to open your schedule up for a little fun. Call up a few friends and see what you guys can get into as you could use the company of good people. Additionally, romance could also offer you a reprieve.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You could find yourself extra busy around the house today, though it seems like there's no other place you'd rather be. Look to home improvement projects or time spent with family to offer some rejuvenation. Watch out for arguments though, as tension could be thick. Find a way to blow off steam.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
A financial gift could be yours today if you're open to receiving — sometimes kindness goes a long way. Meanwhile, you may find yourself fired up today which could put you in a fighting mood. Just take care to choose your battles carefully. On social media? You may need a break to avoid burnout.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Money is the focus today and there's a possibility you can get a nice chunk of it using your charm and keen ability to attract what you want. Just be mindful that you don't spend it faster than you can make it as a sudden expense could crop up and throw you off. Treat yourself but save some for later.
